Klickitat County Historical Society
Klickitat Heritage

The K. C. H. S. has published newsletters since 1975. Many of them are still available to purchase at the Presby Mansion's gift shop, with the costs ranging from $1.00 each for the earliest issues, to $5.00-6.00 each for the most recent issues. If they are out of any issue they will make photocopies of their file-copy for you.
